The Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium and the Alaska Pacific University (APU) will host the Alaska Indigenous Research Program from May 4 through May 22, 2020. The goal of this unique research program is to increase the health research capacity of Alaska Native (AN) and American Indian (AI) individuals, communities and the health researchers and health professionals who serve them by providing cross-cultural research education. As such, the three-week program covers a variety of topics at varying levels of experience. Week 1 is designed for experienced researchers and health professionals, Week 2 is for all levels of experience and Week 3 is designed for those who are interested in health research with little to no experience. Participants can select one or more weeks, depending on what best fits their needs.
The School for Advanced Research, Indian Arts Research Center (IARC) offers two nine-month internships (September 1–May 31) to individuals who are recent college graduates, current graduate students, or junior museum professionals interested in furthering their professional museum experience and enhancing their intellectual capacity for contributing to the expanding field and discourse of museum studies. The internships include a monthly salary, housing, book allowance, travel to one professional conference, and reimbursable travel to and from SAR.
Associated of Schools & Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) is accepting applications for the Summer 2018 ASPPH Undergraduate Internship Program, a 10 – 12 week experience at ASPPH headquarters in Washington, DC. Interns will have the opportunity to work on a variety of projects focusing on education in public health; gain experience working in a professional public health organization; apply skills they have learned in their classes; and interact with and learn from experts in the field of public health.
Border Latino and American Indian Summer Exposure to Research (BLAISER) was created to address health disparities in Arizona’s ethnically diverse and fast-growing communities. This cutting edge 10-week, undergraduate research experience provides an extraordinary laboratory training opportunity, pairing the junior and senior level student-scholars with preeminent UA health sciences researchers. This is a premier research experience for undergraduate students from underrepresented backgrounds arming them with skills to make them competitive and successful in their pursuit of post-secondary education and research.
The Four Directions Summer Research Program (FDSRP) is an exciting summer research opportunity at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) for undergraduate students with a commitment to the health of Native American communities. The FDSRP is in its 24th year, and has brought over 190 students to Boston during this time. We invite students to join us for 8 weeks to engage in basic science or translational research projects under the supervision of Harvard Medical School faculty advisers.
The HERS summer internship program is a paid eight-week internship funded by the National Science Foundation and provides students with the skills and experience needed to succeed in post-secondary education and graduate school. The HERS program is held primarily on the Haskell Indian Nations University and the University of Kansas campuses from June 1 to July 24, 2020.
During the HERS program, interns receive instruction and exposure to: GIS training, graduate-level writing curriculum, introductory environmental assessment, introduction to Indigenous methodologies, professional development training, and preparation for applying to graduate school. Interns research a self-selected topic related to climate and environmental change and its effects on Indigenous communities. Interns create a research
Since 1994, the Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals (ITEP) has offered student summer internships for Native American and other college students with funding from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA). This program provides the opportunity for students to gain hands-on skills with EPA or other governmental and tribal environmental offices.
The Integrated Optics for Undergraduate Native Americans (IOU-NA) Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program is designed for Native American students interested in participating in hands-on research opportunities in top laboratories in optics and photonics, as well as in hydrology, astronomy, soil sciences, atmospheric sciences, and environmental sciences. Selected students are paired with a research project complementing their interests and goals.
IOU-NA students will also participate in Native American focused workshops facilitated by University of Arizona’s Native American-serving entities, gain hands-on experience in CIAN’s culturally relevant two-week Native American focused Optics Research Workshop (ORW), attend presentations given by Native American STEM graduate students and faculty, as well as participate in other activities designed to support Native American Undergraduate students. Pictures from our IOU-NA Event are included below.
The MSRI Undergraduate Program (MSRI-UP) is a comprehensive summer program designed for undergraduate students who have completed two years of university-level mathematics courses and would like to conduct research in the mathematical sciences. The main objective of the MSRI-UP is to identify talented students, especially those from underrepresented groups, who are interested in mathematics and make available to them meaningful research opportunities, the necessary skills and knowledge to participate in successful collaborations, and a community of academic peers and mentors who can advise, encourage and support them through a successful graduate program.
The MARC Program is a unique research, mentoring, financial and academic opportunity for undergraduates belonging to a group considered underrepresented in biomedical research and who have the interest and potential to pursue a PhD or combined PhD (e.g. MD/PhD) degree. The program is a two-year program intended for the last two years of a student’s enrollment at the University of Arizona. The expectation is that students who participate in the MARC program will be well-prepared to take the next step in pursuing their graduate education and a future research career in the biomedical sciences.
